Why not? Ambassador Stevens proved just how expendable people can be to this administration.

So Obama will send troops into Syria to rescue a journalist, but he won't send troops into a Mexican prison to rescue a former Marine?

Libyan Sequel: Obama Hesitates as al-Qaeda Fills Ranks in Syrian Opposition

Syrian rebels with ties to Al Qaeda make up a growing portion of the Syrian opposition, thereby posing a serious problem for Obama administration officials formulating U.S. Syrian policy.

The Al Qaeda-affiliated group filing ranks in the opposition is called the Nursa Front. They are receiving funds from Al Qaeda supporters throughout the world, and following every military victory they achieve more weapons and fighters come pouring in as well.

Another sticking point for the Obama administration is that the Nursa Front is not just tied to Al Qaeda in a general sense, but is “a direct offshoot of Al Qaeda in Iraq.” This means aiding them in any meaningful way could end with individuals in the foreign policy establishment shining a bright and unwelcome light on the conditions that have emerged in Iraq following the U.S. troop-pullout.

Lastly, the presence of Al Qaeda in the Syrian opposition is reminiscent of conditions in Libya, and we’ve seen the result of Al Qaeda’s success there: a consulate destroyed and four Americans dead.

Therefore, even though Bashar al-Assad appears more and more willing to use chemical weapons on his own people and/or foreign factions of the Syrian opposition, the U.S. remains hesitant to involve itself on the side of Al Qaeda.

I don’t know.. things like this tend to make extreme Conservatives out of people.

Liberals turn into Conservatives when they try and run a business.. OR when bad things happen.. such as they get mugged or kidnapped..

Where was your compassion for him when he was murdered?

He went there of his own accord. No one drafted him. No one forced him. Are you suggesting that bo’s mouthpiece getting him self caught in a trap warrants putting at risk the lives of good soldiers to rescue this artful mouthpiece of tyranny? Bah.

He works for the NBC, the enemy of Christians and lovers of liberty. But we should still pray for him. Pray that he makes an act of contrition by disavowing an evil organization like NBC, then pray for his conversion to Christ, then pray for his safety. Pray in this sequence only.

I feel for his family, but knowing and have met many media types, I can’t help but think that what often is a strong sense of entitlement and a naive and childish American-leftist ideology common among these folks gets them into trouble in the real world.

Engel has done a lot of damage to the troops with his biased reporting in Iraq when Bush was president. I haven’t heard much from him since Zero took office, and I don’t recall any negative stories about Afghanistan during that time either. Of course, I make it a point NOT to watch the alphabet networks.

The best journalist is the true victim of terror and unjustice... but instead it is all unionized now. The journalist is just someone with a degree saying he has studied journalism.

It is a scam profession that is tainted from the beginning of fraud, deceit and prostitutional payoffs to the “best” story bidder and government thug out there.

“Humans”... machines with no cause other than being “human”.

Indeed, liberals are big on espousing anything that contradicts the life or methods of the accomplished and successful for sheer political inadequacies.

So we’re expected to feel sorry for a left wing journalist who goes into a war zone. A war where the folks siding with Al Queda are considered the good guys.

I believe the left calls their fallen tools “heroes of the revolution” when they accidentally die in the hands of other ‘useful tools’.

I was reading somewhere recently that arrests, imprisonment and murder of journalists is at record levels throughout the world. Apparently there are some newspapers in Mexico where reporters’ stories aren’t even run with bylines because so many of them are getting murdered by drug cartels. The real reporters — those who go out in the field to actually investigate compelling issues (unlike those jokers who read teleprompters in studios)— are real heroes. Prayers that this guy gets back safely.
